United Arab Emirates: Cycling popular among locals as government encourages sport – News https://kempinski-ajman.com/united-arab-emirates-cycling-popular-among-locals-as-government-encourages-sport-news/ Thu, 04 Nov 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://kempinski-ajman.com/united-arab-emirates-cycling-popular-among-locals-as-government-encourages-sport-news/

Country “goes fast, as fast as the wheels of a bicycle,” says UAE pro-cyclist

Posted: Thu, Nov 4, 2021, 5:31 PM

As the sun rises over the Dubai desert, the Al Qudra cycle path is already in full swing as cyclists exit highways and skyscrapers to cycle an 80-kilometer track.

Every weekend, all year round – even in the scorching summer heat – hundreds, if not thousands of bike enthusiasts come to Al-Qudra, about 50 kilometers (about 30 miles) from downtown. city.

Its car-free lunar landscape is a change of pace for many from their urban way of life and a chance to connect with nature and perhaps spot an Arabian oryx, a rare member of the family of antelopes.

Despite temperatures often exceeding 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit) along with high humidity, cycling has grown in popularity in the UAE sharply.

It didn’t hurt that UAE Team Emirates rider Tadej Pogacar won the last two editions of the Tour de France, the most prestigious cycling race in the world.

New cycling infrastructure is still emerging in the capital Abu Dhabi as well as in Dubai, where the second annual “Dubai Ride” takes place on Friday along the city’s main highway.

Emirati triathlete Asma al-Janahi, 28, describes Al-Qudra as her favorite place in Dubai and a trip equivalent to meditation.

“You walk away from the city, and you just go to see Mother Nature, this beautiful desert,” the sports administrator of New York University Abu Dhabi told AFP.

“It’s very peaceful … seeing birds and oryxes. You feel so connected to this place, especially with a bike.”

Opportunities for cyclists are increasing in the United Arab Emirates, alongside the global boom in sport.

The Abu Dhabi Formula 1 circuit is handed out to cyclists several times a week, with other tracks available across the emirate.

The “Dubai Ride” was launched with great fanfare last year, with Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed leading the parade of cyclists on the six-lane Sheikh Zayed Road.

German Wolfgang Hohmann, who opened a bicycle shop in Dubai with his wife in 2002, says the emirate, best known for its love of four-wheel drive and luxury cars, has come a long way.

“Dubai was not as developed as it is today and we did not have a cycle path,” he told AFP, saying it had been a “long journey” since the opening of the store.

“We now have a ProTour team winning the most important race in the world, (and) we have thousands of cyclists on the weekends on the bike paths,” he said.

According to Yousif Mirza, the only UAE pro-cyclist, sport in the United Arab Emirates “goes fast, as fast as the wheels of a bicycle,” he told AFP.

“Year after year, the progress is noticeable. The government spares no effort when it comes to building tracks,” said Mirza, who represented the United Arab Emirates at the Rio Olympics in 2016.

But even far from mega-malls and massive highways, said Natika Lewis, a cyclist from Wales, cycling is not exempt from Dubai’s “see and be seen” culture.

“Dubai is always bigger and better, so people want the best bike, they want the best kit,” she said.

“People are really competitive, Emiratis and expatriates.”

UAE condemns attempted Houthi drone attack on Saudi Arabia’s Jazan https://kempinski-ajman.com/uae-condemns-attempted-houthi-drone-attack-on-saudi-arabias-jazan/ Wed, 03 Nov 2021 07:00:00 +0000 https://kempinski-ajman.com/uae-condemns-attempted-houthi-drone-attack-on-saudi-arabias-jazan/

Abu Dhabi: The UAE strongly condemned attempts by the Houthi terrorist militias to attack civilians and buildings in Jazan, Saudi Arabia, with two explosive drones, which were intercepted by coalition forces.

In a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) on Tuesday, the UAE reaffirmed that the Houthis’ systematic and continued terrorist attacks reflect their blatant disregard for the international community and all international laws and standards.

The ministry urged the international community to take an immediate and decisive stance to end these recurring acts, which target Saudi critical infrastructure and threaten the stability of the international economy, as well as the global energy supply. He also stressed that the recurring threat of these attacks in recent times is a serious escalation which represents further evidence of attempts by these militias to undermine security and stability in the region.

He renewed the full solidarity of the United Arab Emirates with Saudi Arabia over these subversive terrorist attacks and reiterated his firm stand against all threats to the security and stability of the Kingdom. The UAE also reiterated its support for all measures taken by the Saudi authorities to maintain the safety and security of citizens and residents.

The MoFAIC also stressed that the security of the UAE and that of Saudi Arabia are indivisible and that any threat facing the Kingdom is seen as a threat to the security and stability of the UAE.

Jacob Chacko, Regional Director – Middle East, Saudi Arabia and South Africa at HPE Aruba

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the UAE National Day. The government aims to make the UAE among the best countries in the world by the Union’s Golden Jubilee. Against this vision, he explores ways to use data to improve the lives of citizens, increase the efficiency of operations and create more innovative business models. Collecting, accessing and analyzing data can help government implement strategies, monitor the impact of those policies and ensure a safe living and working environment, while data can also help provide proactive services to the public.



Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, is focused on creating intelligent network solutions that deliver the innovation and flexibility needed to power this next generation of real-time, data-driven applications.

Improve the citizen experience

Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and other emerging technologies automate and streamline processes, monitor workflows, and digitally connect citizens to government agencies, for an enhanced citizen experience, where data analytics from a cloud-based network software can deliver actionable insights for increased operational efficiency.

Analyzes using data collected from various sources, including citizens themselves, can help improve daily life. For example, sensors can alert citizens of a change in air quality or a traffic jam. The information gleaned from this data can then be used by government to plan infrastructure improvements or prioritize urban change projects, and in turn create jobs and ensure a more sustainable environment for the future.

In terms of public safety, AI, cameras and sensors, along with data analysis, can improve security for real-time surveillance and emergency response. Security forces can rely on real-time data and predictive analytics to help police and military officers make more informed decisions while on patrol.

In United Arab Emirates for example, the Home Office had approved the use of smart helmets for specialized police teams equipped with thermal cameras to detect people infected with Covid-19 and sensors that can help authorities recognize faces.

Remote sensing data from satellites and ground sensors can also provide a wealth of real-time information to actively monitor utilities to reduce waste and costs and ensure service delivery. Data-driven analysis based on municipal consumption patterns can encourage citizens to manage their own use of public services, where notifications warn of overconsumption. It can also help the government to balance the supply of public services with the real needs, thus reducing waste.

Secure and efficient networking capabilities

These real-time applications must have the ability to receive, analyze and communicate huge amounts of data, and to achieve this requires a powerful computer and an intelligent edge network, which offers a flexible and highly reliable connection. cloud services, such as Aruba Center. If the network connecting the sensors or devices goes down, the local computer, storage, and resources can operate the devices until the cloud connection is reestablished. Safety and efficacy are therefore not compromised.

Many governments around the world require the separation of open networks from classified networks while sharing the same physical access point. With MultiZone, a capability of the ArubaOSv8 operating system, government IT can create separate zones to allow multiple classifications of data to share the same network infrastructure, but with appropriate levels of control. This control can be managed by Aruba ClearPass, which simplifies role-based access controls over wired and wireless networks for a unified approach.

Enable secure operations from anywhere

The government is increasingly striving to develop smart city projects, based on sensors, data analytics and a smart peripheral network, to improve operations and conserve resources, and to connect with people. citizens and businesses in new ways. For example, automated building management systems can be used in public spaces to control lighting and temperature to maximize comfort, save energy and reduce operating costs.

As government agencies explore the Internet of Things (IoT) to increase the efficiency and security of these smart cities, it is important that the network on which the IoT is built is secure. An intelligent network can manage the encryption of these devices, ensure the integrity of communications, detect suspicious activity through analysis, and react quickly to limit the spread of a cyber attack.

This enhanced cybersecurity can be applied to the workplace, especially as the coronavirus has accelerated the need for a smartly redesigned work environment. Public and private sector employees are no longer tied to the office but can operate anywhere using a number of devices, making them more vulnerable to threats.

Aruba Center is an economically viable cloud-managed network that can deliver secure network services in new locations, whether to support home work or government operations. Aruba’s SD-WAN solutions enable IT teams to quickly optimize connectivity over a hybrid Internet, MPLS, and cellular WAN in remote locations without waiting for service providers. These systems are integrated with Aruba 360 security exchange technology, which provides cloud-based firewall and threat protection.

New business models

As public-private ecosystems around key areas such as healthcare, transport and education multiply to drive dynamic and collaborative networks, data-driven government applications can be used by other stakeholders. . Many companies depend on government data to guide their investments, create new products and encourage innovation.

Aruba’s cloud solutions can help create an open platform for collaboration between the private and public sectors. These solutions provide the storage capacity needed for new initiatives with easy access to data, while addressing security and compliance issues. The cloud can also help to significantly reduce costs by enabling the purchase of additional computing power and services as needed, with an increase or decrease in resources to support rapid reaction to changing demands.

Today, more data than ever is being generated at the edge. Existing networks are unable to handle the massive amounts of data and decisions required in near real time. Network architecture must use artificial intelligence to be predictive. That’s where Aruba ESP comes in. It’s the industry’s first platform with an AI-powered “sixth sense”. The solution is designed to unify, automate and secure the Intelligent Edge and help organizations realize its immense potential.

“Data-driven applications can provide the UAE government with the ability to make informed decisions for the benefit of citizens and economies. By leveraging Aruba’s solutions, government agencies can operate data securely, increase the efficiency of operations and services, and drive innovation for a better future, ”concludes Jacob Chacko, Regional Director – Middle East, Saudi Arabia and South Africa at Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company.

To learn more, visit Aruba at GITEX Technology Week, which runs October 17-21 at the Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC). The company will exhibit at booth number H7-A1.
